NEPS network partners at cooperating research institutions

In order to be able to study education from early childhood to high adulthood on a longitudinal basis, theoretical and methodological approaches from different scientific disciplines must be brought together. The NEPS network therefore brings together the expertise of research institutes, groups and individuals in an interdisciplinary network of excellence organised through three → committees.

The NEPS network

The NEPS network includes all → NEPS network partners, who usually also hold a management function in the → NEPS areas, as well as their employees. The NEPS network currently comprises over 200 people at thirteen institutions throughout Germany.
